First, what are you main goals? How old are you, what are your basic stats, how are you training, what does “diet back on track” mean?
Give us some info and we’ll be glad to help you choose the right supplements for your needs.
Hi Chris, thanks for the reply.
Main Goal: Gain muscle mass, minimize fat gain and loose some fat that has accumulated.
24 years old, 5 ft 10, 165 lbs
Using old Indigo project protocols from when I used i3g a year to a year and a half ago. But I’ve added in some conditioning work exclusively 3 times a week focusing on high intensity intervals (hill sprints being my favorite) or just steady state running on some outdoor trails ( I am under a load but it’s negligible since it’s just water, some fruit, a map, and first aid kit). I will also do some CV activity such as run or swim for 20-30 min post lifting days.
I’ll also throw in some 5/3/1 style training on some lifting days if I want to focus on a specific lift.
So in total it’s 5-6 days lifting with 3 or so days of just strict conditioning.
"Diet back on trak"
So here’s the thing last I updated my log I was at about 185 or so ( I think) but I’ve lost a lot of weight since then since when I get stressed I actually don’t eat. But I’ve gotten back to eating clean and have taken a lot from the Mountain Dog articles. I don’t keep track of specific macros but meals (4-5 per day) usually are composed of a semi fatty meat (fish, bone in meat, etc) with a carb source (jasmine rice quinoa or just vegetables). So when I say I got my “diet back on track” it means I’ve gone to eating pretty much nothing (save maybe a handful of peanut MMs) to quality foods and making sure if have a protein source, fat source, and carb source. I am also trying to minimize my gluten intake though I will occasionally have some bread whenever I make a stew.
Pretty much I’m done letting stress control me and I am resolved to get back on track and achieve the level of fitness I expect of myself. My current goal is to do GoRuck Selection in a year and a half.
Any more info needed please let me know. Thanks!
